    I hope you enjoy your retirement.
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    Congratulations! Sometimes I wish I could fast-forward to retirement...

    My choir is going on tour next wednesday, to the exotic and far off city of Spokane, Washington.

    Also, last night I had a dream where the music of Medtner and CPE Bach became one.

    Congratulations on making it to retirement, AR. I hope you have plans - and that they all work out to your satisfaction. I also hope that you are not retiring from TC.

    Thanks all. Plan B has been set into motion - we move next week to our new house/shop combo, where we will run an art gallery for my wife's paintings and my photography....

    How's this for crazy, eccentric musicians? We originally reserved a jacuzzi suite for Ronnie Milsap for his concert at our casino, but he called down after arriving and informed us that he had to have a regular room, not a suite, because the suite was too big.

    One of our most loved female members on talkclassical, Huilunsoittaja, has introduced me to turntable FM. Its one of the reasons she's not around so much these days. I can see why, that site is the ****!

    My new years goals have changed dramatically. Now my big life goal, to give you a slice of my vision, does involve compulsively composing at the rate of a baroque composer so I can be like Martinu.

    Enjoyed hearing all about Philidelphia from you to follow this up. It has been a massive learning experience for you in more ways than one. I'm excited for you because when you get back to Whitman, you'll have some real experience to tout about, and you'll probably binge on music performance and other such relative comfort activities. You were quite brave to go through with it all and you are well on your way to coming out relatively unscathed(probably less troubled any of the negatives than you were last weekend). I say, take this last week slow, don't rush yourself and gently process your reminiscences(an odd choice of phrasing that literally captures exactly what I had in mind to say). Your summer should be an awesome relief.

    We write a shopping list on the refrigerator as we run out of things during the week. Today's list is rather short~

    Me: BEER
    my hubby: organic herbal tea

    I woke up at 5 this morning and said goodbye to two of my housemates who have become rather dear to me and I will probably not see them again. I feel like spending the day being reflective, but I have lots of work to do, which is probably for the best.

    Thanks, clavi, you are sweet. Last weekend wasn't really negative (though you're right that I felt differently when I made that post), I just didn't (still don't) know what to make of it. I look forward to going home and hopefully maintaining the progress I think I've made towards becoming an actual adult, and seeing old friends and family, and hopefully seeing you as well!

    Just a personal opinion that you can take with a grain of salt since I'm not as far in my journey as you, but I bet your experience will need little maintenance. Don't be surprised or discouraged if you find yourself enjoying indulging in elements of being a kid this summer.

    I'm not even sure what that even means. Could you clarify this progress you've made to becoming an "actual" adult is?

    Ahem. Being a responsible adult is not intrinsically unpleasant. Many of those 'childish things' that we are admonished to put aside don't really need to be tossed in the waste bin. I don't know if the morality thread has mentioned it, but there can even be pleasure in having the responsibility for 'doing the right thing'.
